Lara grew up in Illinois where she spent her childhood on Lake Michigan and exploring the San Juan mountains of Colorado. She has been skiing since she could walk and is a lover of all things recreation. In 2012, she moved to Montana to pursue an education in wildlife biology which has led to years of seasonal natural resource work surveying some of the natural treasures of the West. Lara is excited to be out in our beloved Sawtooths all winter. You’ll most likely see her up at the Williams Peak Hut or on the trail toting a large pack and an even larger smile.
